The River is the first and only recovery program in Asia with a focus on food, and we use it as a catalyst for change to empower your long term recovery.

We believe that health and nutrition are vital and we have a diverse 6-person culinary team that serves a-la-carte Western and Asian cuisine that is nutritionally beneficial while being both visually appealing and tasty.

Produce is locally sourced and organic whenever possible and we are sensitive to dietary restrictions including gluten-free, halal, vegan or vegetarian.

We have partnered with David’s Kitchen, Asia’s top awarded restaurant, to make sure that the quality, taste, and the service is always top notch and never sacrificed just because you are in treatment.
